Actress Lee Sunha’s 2-week workshop has finally ended and the impact of these 2 weeks on Yoomyeong’s life is huge. Yoomyeong has now become closer to the other members of the Oedipus group and he has also come to appreciate the group.
Now that Lee Sunha’s workshop is over, it’s time for another instructor to lead the Oedipus group. This time the instructor is none other than famous actor Yoon Hansung! What new developments will happen in Yoomyeong’s life as a result of this change? We will see in The Genius Actor’s Aura Chapter 20!
The Genius Actor’s Aura Chapter 19 opens with Shin Yoomyeong walking towards his classroom while thinking about all that happened after actress Lee Sunha’s workshop ended.
A 2-week acting workshop continued after Lee Sunha’s workshop ended, with 6 hours allocated to 3 instructors each day.
The 2-week class features individual exercises to improve character, bodywork workshops to optimize physical balance, and two-person layouts to draw out natural emotions like empathy and fatherhood. 4-person department to maximize visuals and creativity.
The quest caused the members of Oedipus to participate more often, which changed their perspective on Yoomyeong.
Yoomyeong’s views on the Oedipus members also changed over time. Yoomyeong saw how every member of Oedipus discussed his opinions without hesitation, without any backsliding between seniors and juniors.
What Yoomyeong likes most about Oedipus is that the seniors in this workshop really work hard and dedicated and take time out of their busy schedules to be able to help the juniors and the workshop in general. Yoomyeong wonders if this is what Ryushin meant when she told him to feel the charm of Oedipus.
Yoomyeong finally arrived at the workshop and saw that only Seon Yuri was there. Yoomyeong tried to talk to Yury but she coldly ignored him. Many things changed during the workshop but Yury’s cold nature remained the same.
Seon Yuri, the person in charge of the workshop, always carries out her work with great diligence and she tends to handle her responsibilities on her own without asking for anyone’s help.
Despite Yuri’s nature and behavior, Yoomyeong finds it difficult not to appreciate her hard work. Yoomyeong notices that Yuri is practicing choir singing but she’s having trouble with it. He decides to help her and so he tells Yuri to try using falsetto because it will help her singing voice.
Instead of thanking Yoomyeong for his help, Yuri gets angry at him because he always acts as if everything is too easy for him. The focus shifts to a flashback showing how worried Yury was about his singing voice.
Yuri tells her manager that she is having trouble with choir singing, which has caused her to be pushed out of the lead role in the fall performance of Oedipus.
Yuri’s manager told her that she didn’t need to be good at singing because she could continue acting in dramas. Yuri didn’t say anything, but inside, she felt depressed. After all, she did not want to become an actress who only acted in movies and television series because she had difficulty singing on stage.
Yuuri didn’t want to limit himself, so he started practicing choir singing every day. She even did it successfully, but for some reason her voice was always strained when singing in the choir. This entire flashback is given to show why Yuri got angry at Yoomyeong.
Yuri gets angry at Yoomyeong because he makes her difficulties look so easy. She tells Yoomyeong that he must take everything easy because he is a genius. Yoomyeong told Yuri that no one knows what anyone else is thinking and then he left the workshop.
Yuri thinks Yoomyeong doesn’t know much about her so she goes back to practicing choir singing again. Yuri recalls being ridiculed all her life for one reason or another. People always act like they know her, but they don’t.
When thinking about her past experiences, Yuri realizes that she is acting like the people who made fun of her. She stopped practicing for a bit to calm down and then she decided to give Yoomyeong’s advice a chance. Yuri took a deep breath and this time used a falsetto voice.
What was surprising was that Yuuri’s voice became clearer, more stable, and even more relaxed. After that, the focus shifts to the other members of the Oedipus group who are waiting for Yoon Hansung’s appearance in their final chapter.
Since Yoon Hansung was quite famous among the members of Oedipus, they all became excited to know what story he would share with them. A while later, Yoon Hansung finally appeared at the workshop.
